Here at the Bear Sanctuary we know what it is like at feeding time. If you have ever seen a hungry Renault Bear, dying for some Jammy Toast it is an experience you will never forget. In addition, their table manners leave a great deal to be desired and they tend to make an unholy mess into the bargain.
I was watching GMTV the other morning before leaving for work. They were discussing the funny things children come out with when they had an email from a viewer who explained what their five-year-old granddaughter had said when visiting them. The child was searching through the kitchen cupboards when she found a tin of evaporated milk. She turned around to her Granny and asked why she had bought it because, “There is nothing in that tin, it is empty”.
The Bears read the Daily Mirror most days and I know that other newspapers are the same concerning celebrities. Sometimes it seems like the press hate that people are stars and ordinary people in the street are interested in their lives. The press seem to enjoy building unknowns into stars just so that they can knock them down again once they become famous.
From time to time, The Bears award the title of Hero of the Bears to someone who we think has had a big impact on others in any way whatsoever. They maybe someone famous known the world over or some unsung hero who does something for others without any reward for themselves. The one thing you do need to become a Hero of the Bears is you have to be someone very special!
The Bears were devastated at the weekend to hear of the death of Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins. The former twice World Snooker Champion died from throat cancer after being a heavy smoker all his life. He was reportedly found dead in his flat in Belfast on Saturday morning after he failed to answer the door or his telephone.
We have been using the Mystique theme for the blog for some time now and felt as if we needed a change. Not because there is anything wrong with Mystique but just because we felt like a challenge. After a great deal of soul-searching we decided instead of using a free theme, we would use some of our pocket money on a professional theme.
